Freedom Fest 2020 is in the books and boy did it look different this year! This year we focused on the recognition of our Veterans and their families. In fact we are still in the middle of our last event - our Service Member Care Holiday Care Package Drive.  Learn more about the care package drive by visiting: Care Packages for Our Troops - Emporia Main Street

All categories will be for participation only. Typically, events are timed and awards are given accordingly. This year, everyone who registers will be entered into a drawing to win prizes – including gift certificates sponsored by Lyon County State Bank and hand-crafted trophies created by the Welding Department at Flint Hills Technical College.
